Women in Cinema Collective (WCC), a group of women in the Malayalam film industry, had recently launched a new campaign titled ‘Refuse the Abuse’ declaring protest on cyber attacks against women. This gave this actress an opportunity to voice her dissent against the miscreants and the authorities.

The ‘Refuse The Abuse’ campaign is part of WCC’s efforts to make cyber spaces safe and free of abuse and harassment. On their social media pages, WCC had mentioned, “The campaign will feature cyber experts and survivors, sharing their stories, their expertise and experiences respectively.

The actress is Sona M Abraham, now a Law student.

She took onto social media to begin a campaign to have her film scenes deleted and action taken against those who were behind circulating the pictures and videos.

She took onto Facebook and wrote: “I have always been afraid of the society and judgements and i took the abuse as if i deserved it .But i didn’t deserve any bit of what i went through all these years. I am proud of myself, and the online abusers and the perpetrators are the ones who should be ashamed of themselves. Now the refusetheabuse campaign started by #WCC has given me so much strength and courage to open up and talk about things. I hope to see some changes towards the misogynistic and inhumane treatment and attitude. Looking forward Women in Cinema Collective. #SonaAbraham
